I mentioned it in this thread, but I wanted to make a topic about it.
Something that really bothers me is when the story has a good plot but focuses on the forced romance. Don’t get me wrong, I freaking love romance! But the way most writers write romance make me want to punch a wall. Most love interests are usually cocky and low-key harass the MC, and don’t get me started on the bad boy who pushes you against the wall, those fuckers can choke on a shoe and I would be fucking CHEERING!!!
These “love interests” have no personality besides sex and gangs, and the only “character development” they have is just feeling remorse. I want a story where a guy/girl or MC change throughout the story. I WANT SLOWBURN THAT IS NOT ABOUT SEX!!!
This is one of the reasons I stopped reading several stories, because the plot seemed amazing but the “romance” just ruined the story.
I prefer slow burns myself.

Does anyone else find it cringey when they slowly pan up and down on the guy’s bird chests describing how good they look? Talking about “He stood there with no shirt on with his chest glistening in the light, I never noticed how chiseled his body looked ”
